I've written about this so many times during my tenure as a teacher and as a blogger. But it's a concept that hits teachers over the head daily as we see what seems like limitless needs and potential--there's so much we can do for every student, classroom, and school. Yet, we can't do it all. This is why we have to continually stay mindful of our arenas of priority, purpose, and focus--what is it we will do, and how will we do it?
For me there are some rough edges to work out in the months ahead--areas I'm ready to work on and areas for which I've set time aside to meet, and there's new learning and revision needed too for my priority areas of teaching and learning: science, math, and SEL. Onward.
